Sri Lanka Won’t Allow UN War Crimes Panel To Visit
Sri Lanka’s president said Tuesday he will not allow a U.N. panel investigating allegations of war crimes to enter the country. President Mahinda Rajapaksa told foreign journalists that he will not accept any investigation by the United Nations into allegations of abuses by his soldiers and the defeated Tamil Tiger rebels in the final period of the country’s civil war in 2009. An earlier U.N. report said up to 40,000 ethnic Tamil civilians may have been killed in the last months of the quarter-century civil war.
